When you need replacing head light bulbs in BMW X3 3.0, make sure you install effective and strong agents. Safe drive at night on BMW X3 is possible with working head light only. Though, light bulbs in BMW headlight in cars with 3.0 motor type might work wrong. BMW insists on installing only 35 W power of lamps and not more. Efficient light bulbs were installed in 2009 in cars with motor code M57N2306D2. The only right decision is the bulb of H7 cap type and with base form PX26d. When time passes, 12 V voltage lamps may be less effective in X3.
It’s no need to take the headlight of X3 3.0 apart, BMW provided simple bulb change. But power of 55 W is just optimal feature, real light of 12 V lamp may be much stronger. The needed cap type should be only H7, otherwise BMW made in 2008 won’t take the bulb. Installing PK32d-2 lamp by yourself can be hard for 2013 X3 owners.
Caution is needed for X3 with motor type 2.0 when replacing the light bulb. There is no chance to install in 2007 BMW any other type than H7 light bulb with PX26d base. Provide exactly needed voltage of 12 V and don’t forget nominal power 55 W. Observe all recommendations and your 2010 BMW X3 will serve with no problems.
